Aspiring A level artists spend the weekend in Anglesey with renowned artists…

On the 9th – 12th November Dr Smith took 3 enthusiastic A level year 12 Art and Design students to the Conway Centre in Anglesey. The students, Katie Smith, Rowan Allen and Chloe Harrison worked intensely with artists in a workshop environment alongside other students and teachers from a range of schools, gaining inspiration from them. Students produced a body of work which will contribute to their A level coursework to potentially raise their attainment.

Students created the following during the weekend:

  • Monoprints
  • Sketches outdoors of Snowdonia Mountains and landscape
  • A1 Artist studies sheet with sketches
  • A0 large scale drawings with gravy browning, charcoal, emulsion and oil pastel
  • 3D paper sculpture

I’ve never worked at such a rapid speed before, I’ve definitely learnt and produced a lot!
